Whales are huge animals

- and I saw some whales in the Vancouver aquarium. They're tame and trained so you can get very close and watch them playing. We also went on a boat trop from Tofino, Vancouver Island, and on sea all I saw was a lively activity just under the surface where a goup af whales were feeding seaweed or something tiny.

a Virtual guest for webcast academy interview

I'm getting ready to meet in a skype conversation with Lee Baber's grade 8 students. When I was invited some days ago I quickly scanned my memory for good stories to tell totally unknown strangers, then I came up with animals as our conversation topic.

I know a list of animal sounds transcribed to the human alphabet in many different languages and I find this is quite fun.

I also made a search for online media material and found one good resource with free video and sound clips.
